Sometimes I stand in my kitchen eating the first bite of something I've made, and I think to myself, damn Tracy, you're a great baker! Even though this recipe does not require any baking, it is still amazingly good.
I definitely ate half the amount myself and took the rest into work to stop myself from eating the rest. It was enjoyed by all, it's that addictive! It's a winner of a recipe and after enough batches of puppy chow, I can make it quickly with minimal mess!
I first saw brownie puppy chow at a gas station while on my Michigan travels, it was good, but not great. After scoping around the internet I could not find a recipe for brownie batter puppy chow that sounded good enough, so this is what I came up. Enjoy! I certainly did!
Brownie Batter Puppy Chow
Adapted from Cookie Butter Puppy Chow
Yield - 2 quarts
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
9 cups rice Chex cereal
1 box brownie mix of your choice
Melt the butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter in a large bowl set on top a pot of simmering water. Heat and stir until melted.
Slowly add the Chex cereal to the melted chocolate and stir gently until all the cereal is covered.
Divide the brownie mix between two gallon bags. Divide the chocolate covered cereal between the two bags, close, and shake until all the cereal is covered.
Refrigerate to harden the puppy chow and then enjoy!
